I already convert some html files to pdf. My problem is text at the bottom of each page that contains file path, date and time. Something like this:
file:///C|/Documents%20and%20Settings/LocalUser/Desktop/course/file01.htm [2/9/2009 10:54:14 AM] Is there any way remove these objects?

    This is a setting of Internet Explorer. You need to change the page setup. Default the footer has the parameters: &u&b&d

    &u stands for the URL. Remove this, and the URL will not be printed.

    I tried this. I removed any characters from Header and footer in Page Setup of Internet Explorer. And this didn't worked. But I don't want print from IE to acrobat printer. Instead of this, I try "Create PDF from multiple files". Everything works fine except this line at the bottom of each page. After the PDF was created I tried remove footer, but Acrobat tells me that no footer exists. I can delete these lines via TouchUp Object Tool (but not on 100 pages).

    I did this in Acrobat 9.0 and after convert html pages to PDF, I tried update footer and it works. Click on Document > Header&Footer > Add and then click replace existing. "Document > Header&Footer > Update" will not work.

    This solution will work but in my case when the user clicks the button that creates the PDF, I dont want them to have to manually go and remove the file path from the bottom of the page.  Is there a way I can remove the file path before the user views the contract and sends it to the clients?  Also, why does the file path even show up at the bottom of the page?

    Thank you in advance for any help.
